Radio City Music Hall

They are celebrating 75 years of the Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall this year and here's a photo of the front of the hall. It's a very popular show here this time of year and features the rockettes dancers along with musicians, ice skaters and a manger scene with live animals. It's sort of over-the-top but I still like it!

:) I think it is SUPPOSED to be a little over the top - no? What a beautiful tree. Will you show us the one at Rockefeller center too?

Great photo!

Have you ever seen one of those shows?

I guess it makes it being over the top. If youre going to do it go for it. Enjoy your weekend.

superbe cette photo, je suis content de voir que tu te mets au photo de soir (ou de nuit), NYC la nuit c'est tellement magnifique, c'est vraiment la cité lumière. Le Radio City est magnifique, tu as déjà vu le spectacle des 'rockettes dancers' ?
Je te souhaite un bon weekend.

Lori, Next time your in town, we should get together for coffee or tea. It would be nice to meet up with another blogger. Love the photo of the 75th.

Lori said...

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by!

Blue Wave and Olivier, yes, I saw the Radio City show years ago and it was lots of fun. I'm going to see it again later this month too!

Isadora, yes, I'll make sure to take a picture of the Rockefeller tree after they light it. If I can get through the crowds.

Barb, yes, we must meet up when I'm home next. That would be great! I'll be home for a week at Christmas time. It would be good to meet you!

Outstanding nighttime shot, Lori! I saw "The Sunshine Boys" at Radio City while on a high school trip to NYC in December, 1975.

So glad you snapped this. I was there last week and it was total mayhem: tons of crowds lining to see the show. Craziness.
It's like Casse-Noisettes (The Nutcracker?), it's one of those quintessential holiday show that you have to see at least once. I saw the Christmas Spectacular a few years ago. I did not know it was a kid show, lol! It's fun. And cute.
